A tisket a tasket...a home decor basket!

This week, April's Guest Designer, Wendy, shares a lovely holiday basket she created!

"Easter Egg Basket"

When I saw the basket weave template I decided I wanted to make a basket to hold flowers, which became eggs instead for some home decor.     

 I started by using gesso and making 2 patterns on my paper with the basket weave template.

Once that dried I began cutting out the box part and added some handles.

Then I finished assembling the basket by adding pieces on either side with flaps to keep everything sturdy.

A few flowers/eggs made the perfect Easter/spring decor item!


We hope that Wendy's creative basket has inspired you to try making something for your home decor also!
